The weather Is a continuation of that which has tavorcu the entire journey. Points scheduled for speeches today were Torre' Haute , Decatur nnd Springfield , 111. But throughout the trip the president has expressed a desire to have the train stopped nt every point where the crowd is largo nnd clamorous to see and hear him. At , Terre Haute the president entered a carriage , fol lowed by Secretaries Gage , Wilson und Bliss , pnd the party was given a drive about the city , lasting nearly halt an. hour. The departure from the train was made just on the outskirts and the president , after being Shown the city , was driven to the station to re-embark.

One of the most In teresting Incidents in the entire presidential trip occurred at Terre Haute after his drive around the city , which gave the president an opportunity to see the Terre Haute street fair , now In progress. Ho ascended n plat form near the Union depot arm in arm with the venerable Richard W. Thompson , ex- secretary 'of the navy. The sight of the veteran statesman on the arm of the pres ident of the United States was the signal for uproarious and long-continued appfuuse from 12,000 throats. Mr. Thompson Intro duced tbo president , who said : My Fellow Citizens : I have no expectation of making myself heard by this vast assem blage of my fellow citizens of tbo state of Indiana. I thank you for this warm and hearty reception. It gives mo peculiar nlpas- ure to meet again the citizens of the city of Terre Haute and not the Isnst of that pleasure Is that It gives me an opportunity of meeting my old friend , your neighbor , the veteran statesman and patriot , Hon. Richard W. Thompson. I do not forget that this wan tbo home of that other distinguished Indlanlau , whoso eloquence moved great au diences , whoso friendship I enjoyed , the Hon. D. W > Voorhees. ( Applause. ) My fellow cit izens , for several days we have been travelIng - Ing through the great west , nnd everywhere we have gone great assemblages like this have greeted us. I do not misinterpret. I know what It means. It has no personal significance und It does mean that all tbo people of all the sections 'aro once more united under one flag , united In one purpose and patriotism. It means , my fellow citi zens , that the people of the United States want the victories of the army and navy to bo recognized In the treaty of peace. It means that they want these who arc charged with the administration of the government to BOO to It that the war was not In vain and that the lust fruits of our achievements on land and sea shall not be lost.

From the rear platform of his car ha stepped over a carpeted passageway to a stand laden with flowers and covered with American Hags. At the conclusion of hla speech hero thr presi dent called for three cheers for the army and navy , which were given with J > will. Then the president said : "Three cheers for the old flag. " The response was tro- mcndoux. Ono old man near the platform waved his hat and shouted "Dewey made them honor It. " The president smiled at this remark nud nodded hla head as It In approval of the sentiment Mr. MoKlnley'g speech at Arcola was as follows : My Fellow Citizens : Wo are a most fortunate - tunato people. We not only have a rovlvrl of patriotism among tha people but we havu a return of prosperity to thb ioun- try. Our business conditions are good at homo and our trade is good abroad. Ylie producer has more and better consumers than he had a few vcara ago. That Is because the business of the country has been re stored. The factories and shons and the great productive enterprises are again at work , so that you have consumers at home as well as consumers abroad. We sold last year to Europe more than we bought of Eu rope. We sent more American products to the old world , produced and made In the United States by our own labor , than l\e sent out of the country in any year in nil our hlbtory ; arid more than turoo fourths of our exportatlous came from the fields ar.d farms of the United States. And here in your city of Arcola you know what it mcat.t to have n foreign market. Who.i you < an- not sell your broonicorn In o-ir own coun try you are glad to send the surplus to some other country.

Mr. Lin coln followed the people and following the people he made no mistake. Wo ha\o had great glory out of the war and in UB settle ments nnd we must be cuidjd only by ihfa demands of right and eonsctonie and dulv. And when we have settled the problems i.f the .war our next triumphs must be those of commerce , net bv arm ? , but by our su perior advantages nnd by the cklll and ge nius and eneigy cf our people. 1 ihank you for this cordial reception and urn gla 1 to know that all the people of all tl'o coun try nro Binding together and mean to stand together so long as these vast problems re main unsolved.

IJXAHK3 General Shatter Gives Dr. GnllirnKl aa Important Document. A copy of a document of'considerable his- torlcal Importance In connection with UN war Jn Cuba was left In the hands of Dr W. J. Galbralth by General1 Shafter just be fore the latter took his departure for Chicago cage yeste/day afternoon. Its value lies Ir the fact that It gives something of a solu tion of the mystery that baa conslderablj puzzled both army officials and citizens thi reason why the Spaniards so readily sur rendered Santiago do Cuba to the army un dpr General Shatter. The paper is a copy of a letter sent t < the governor-ln-chlef of Cuba and the mln Ister of war at Madrid by General Linares the commander- the forces In Santiago It was written some two weeks or more be fnre the surrender of the city. It tells of th desperate stralta In which the Spanish sol dlory were and shows that their suffering led to the surrender of the city before 1 was expected. The final lines of the lette also Indicate that the Spanish governmen had been considering the question of sur rqnder at that time , but were afraid appar cjitly to take the step. The paper has neve before been published , although It has beei In General Shatter's possession over ; month. It Is as follows In full : July 12 , 1808. To the General in Chief.

( Signed ) LINARES. This Interesting letter -was brought to Ight In the course of a conversation be- \vccn General Shatter and Dr. Galbralth. Dr. Galbraith was thrown Into close rela- lonshlp with the distinguished visitor , for .ho latter placed himself In his hands , ouln ; ; o the close friendship that exists between Dr. Galbralth and Dr. Goodfcllow. General Shatter's staff surgeon. While the two weio talking over the Cuban war General Shatter remarked that General Linares had come to regard him highly , stating at one time that he , Gen eral Shatter , was a "true Christian geu- .leman. " To this fact ho ascribed the re ceipt of a copy of the above letter , whose contents ho then disclosed to Dr. Galbralth. The latter became at once interested and said : "General , that letter ought to bo published. The 'American people are deeply ntorested In the course of events that led up to the surrender of Santiago and that otter throws Inside light upon the causes ; hat led to the fall of the city. " "If you think so , " responded General Shafter , "I will turn the letter over to you and you can do whatever you please with t. " Consequently when the party arrived at the depot and entered the train , General Shatter rummaged among his belongings and brought to light the letter. This he turned over toDr. . Galbralth , who has It now In his possession. Dr. Galbralth met with the favor of Gen eral Shafter and before leaving the latter Invited him to attend the Peace Jubilee In Chicago and become his guest during the celebration. Dr. Galbralth has accepted the Invitation. SCOUT CONSPIRACY STORY Aiitl-DrcyfuM I'mier * AHiert It IN n 1'lenor I'opnlnr I'nvop Oilier I'aitcrH IiiHl.it it IN Accurate. PARIS , Oct. IB. The antl-rovlslonlst papers regard the reported discovery of a military plot against the government as be- ng pure Invention. The Figaro says It Is nformed that the French generals agree In declaring that their duty Is to show abso- Ute obedience to the government. The Gau- ois classes the affair as "a conspiracy with out conspirators. " In spite of this , the papers which announced the conspiracy In sist on the exactness of their information. The Petite Hopubliquo Francalse points out that there has been no official denial of the reported conspiracy. The Auroro asserts that the government received warning of the plot from different sources and possesses mportant documentary evidence and state ments of witnesses , According to the Petit Bleu , the generals engaged In the plot met at Versailles and sent emissaries 'to ' Prince Victor Bonaparte. The hesitation of Prince Victor , however , obliged them to turn In an other direction. The government , the Petit Bleu adds , has received a number of re ports In regard to the plot , ono of them calling attention to the absence of a certain commander of an army corps from his head quarters. The Palx states that Prince Victor Bona- part left Turin on October 8 and arrived In Brussels on October 12. The paper adds that during this Intend Prince Victor crossed the French frontier several times. LONDON , Oct. 15.

" "Continuing , the Correspondence says ; "Tho Americans are uncompromising and disposed to only yield on points of unimpor tant detail. They are not disposed to agree to arbitration , while Spain Is willing to ac cent Russia or Germany.

Miss Chllds fell to the pavement and , brushing the girl's sister aside , Mrs. Bishop stood over her bodySbo pointed the re volver at her head and llred the four re maining chambers within a distance of a few feet. Her excitement was such , how ever , that none of the bullets found their mark. The frenzied woman dropped her revolver and It was tccured by some unknown per son.

Mr. Bishop nnd people In the restaurant state that nothing transpired at the counter which could possibly have explained Mrs. Bishop's excited condition.
